Award-winning composer John Finbury and singer-lyricist Thalma de Freitas team up for the first time on Sorte!
Their new album of Brazilian-flaired Latin Jazz songs was produced by Latin Grammy winner Emilio D. Miler, who assembled an all-star band, featuring Vitor Gonçalves on piano, Rhodes and accordion, John Patitucci on bass, Chico Pinheiro on guitar, Duduka Da Fonseca on drums, and Rogerio Boccato and the legendary Airto Moreira on percussion. This joint artistic venture finds Ms. de Freitas’ natural talent seasoned by experience, evident in her wise and personal lyrics and exquisite vocal delivery.
SORTE! is the first song in the collaboration between Latin Grammy nominee John Finbury and Afro-Brazilian singer-songwriter-actress Thalma de Freitas, and the first single from the album SORTE!, released on May 1, 2019.
Sorte! is a love letter about serendipity, how “great mistakes also mean luck”, uplifting the feelings of trust in the Universe, which always has our back and conspires in favor of Love.
